MOYS Sod-Cutting Train Lands In Western Region As Axim Gets Multi-Purpose Sports Facility

Residents of Axim in the Western Region of Ghana were thrown in ecstatic mood after the Minister of Youth and Sports Hon. Isaac Asiamah and his team landed there to cut a sod for the construction of a multi-purpose sporting facility for the development of sports and recreation in the area.

The Sports Minister whose commitment to develop sports in the country knows no bounds and does not discriminate was happy a historic sporting facility will be built for the people soon.

The sod-cutting exercise follows similar events which had already taken place at Ho and Koforidua where work is progressing swiftly.

Speaking at the sod-cutting exercise on Saturday at the Axim Red Park, the Sports Minister Hon. Isaac Asiamah said “The government is committed to the development of the youth in particular and sports in general to ensure equal opportunities for all.”

“We are committed to ensuring that an international standard sporting facility is put up here so that one day the Black Stars can train and play friendly matches with the Green Eagles of Nigeria here,” he added.

The facility will be made up of a FIFA standard football pitch, 8-lane athletics track, tennis court, basketball and handball courts, a counselling center, an ICT center, an entrepreneurship center and a state of the art restaurant.

Following his appointment as the Sports Minister, Hon. Isaac Asiamah has taken infrastructural development as a key component of his administration towards the development of sports.

His desire to see the country’s sporting facilities handed massive facelift has seen the closure of the Accra Sports Stadium which is currently undergoing renovation ahead of the 2018 Women’s AFCON.
